Sick of spider veins?
Sclerotherapy involves injecting a solution directly into the spider vein that causes it to scar and collapse, forcing blood to reroute through healthier veins. The collapsed vein is reabsorbed into local tissue and eventually fades.
Is Sclerotherapy right for me?
If you’re bothered by your spider veins and want a minimally invasive solution to help reduce their appearance, Sclerotherapy might be right for you. The injections can even improve related symptoms such as aching, swelling, burning and night cramps.*
What can I expect from Sclerotherapy?
The in-office procedure requires no downtime and no anesthesia. The treatment itself can take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour to complete depending on the extent and number of veins. Some clients experience minor stinging or cramps when the needle is inserted. The injection solution irritates the lining of the vein, causing it to swell shut and block the flow of blood.
Once the needle is withdrawn, your medical provider will apply compression to the area to keep blood out of the injected vessel and disperse the solution. For large veins, a compression pad may be taped onto the site to keep the area compressed while your doctor moves on to the next vein. Most clients can return to normal activities immediately following the procedure. You should avoid sun exposure in the treatment area for 2 weeks following the procedure.
When will I see my results?
Treated veins tend to fade within a few weeks, although occasionally it may take up to 2 months to see the full results.* In some instances, several Sclerotherapy treatments may be needed.
